Urgent: Benjy Hockley Needs a Lung!

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
Benjy Hockley, a 34 year old immigrant from England, has cystic fibrosis and is finally turning to the public for help, as his situation gets critical.
He is in desperate need of a lung.
Please consider signing a halachic organ donor card in general  - consult with your rabbi and family about it, but at least consider it, but if you are in any position to assist the Hockleys in their search for a lung right now, it has gotten urgent.
If you have a lead or know someone who might be able to donate, contact me offline (israeli.jew at gmail dot com) and I will put you in touch with the relevant person.
Even if you don't have a lung to donate, or know someone who does, you can keep Benjy in your thoughts and prayers. His Jewish name is Binyamin Yitzchak Yosef Leib ben Faiga.
See this Ynet article and Modiin Info for more information
